Have you ever heard about Scour?

Scour Points Values
650 points = $25

And, the list goes on…
Not only this, Scour has another interesting feature too.
You might have ever dreamed to search Google, Yahoo and MSN all at one click.
Sometimes if you not find search results according to your wish, you think ‘Had I be the owner of Google, I would have ranked the search results as per my own wish’.
With Scour, you can do all this. Not only you can search Google, Yahoo and MSN together at the same time but can also vote any result up or down.
Yes, I am not joking. That’s true, you get paid to search.
The company is saying that with this new search engine and with the idea of selection by the users and displaying the results according to that, it is making a new way to search and you will only be shown what you want to see. The results that you do not want to see will not come to your screen and they will go far down.
Scour also provides plugins for Internet Explorer and Firefox.
